Hi, Just to add some details, the plugin did not work after I installed and placed the image as described in the instruction. However, when I added the keyword lightbox in the "Link Rel" under "Image Details > Advanced Options" the lightbox started to work. I had previous experience working with lightbox so hope this helps if someone ran into the same problem as I did.
